The Wire - s01e07 - One Arrest - 8/7/2017

A CSI guy told Bunk in an earlier episode that the casing he and McNulty recovered from Deidre Cresson's apartment was a ballistic match for a weapon used in two other homicides -- Taureen Boyd and Roland Leggett (murders which McNulty had earlier ascribed to the Barksdale gang). There was no mentio...

GoT - s07e02

I'm sure I'll have more to post here when I listen to my podcast still this week, but something that struck me as odd and it hasn't been mentioned. Dany and Varyis were talking about Jon Snow and how they should get him there to make him an ally. I thought it was weird that conversation ended with ...

64194 I knew Bodie wasn't going to crack during the good cop/bad cop game; it was funny that he actually got Carver to act out instead. "You're supposed to be the GOOD cop, dumb mother!##$" Things took a weird tonal shift when they let Bodie play pool with him and got him a sandwich. Bodi...

The Wire - s01e04 - Old Cases - 07/16/2017

Still, McNulty did brazenly flout his authority. You can't let people do that too often or discipline and order in the unit will start to break down and you'll get a reputation for being weak. Daniels seems to be competent and secure enough in himself though that he can let a few things slide. He le...

The Wire - s01e03 - The Buys - 07/10/2017

Yeah, I think Omar was being slightly uncharitable with his assessment, but then it says something about what his standards are like. D'Angelo increased the Pit's revenue substantially while hardening the operation to standard buy-bust police tactics, but Omar was able to identify the buy-busts for ...

So, who thought that Kima was running over to stop the police from beating on Bodie? Does the revelation that Daniels might be a bit dirty change how you view him? This episode also gave us D'Angelo's lesson on chess to young Wallace and Bodie. That sort of thing can easily come off as a cliche, but...

The Wire - s01e02 - The Detail - 07/02/2017

I don't think anything has been said yet with regard to the possibility of Daniels not being as clean as he appears. I do love what they did with McNulty's apartment though. So often in TV shows everyone has a nice looking living space whether it makes sense for the character or not (economically, o...

The Wire - s01e02 - The Detail - 07/02/2017

As a citizen, I have to agree with Marla (Lt. Daniels's wife) that he should've hung his men for the fiasco at the high-rises... but as a police supervisor, it's clear that he felt he had basically no choice, unless he wanted to be a pariah within the department which would make it practically impos...

The Wire - s01e01 - The Target - 6/25/2017

Good insight! How many times have you seen this pilot episode? You seem so wise! Thanks... to answer your question, an embarrassing number of times.I first caught the show back when it originally aired towards the end of season 2 but I didn't actually go back and watch the first episodes until in b...

And it's not just that McNulty defied the chain of command, he was fucking with the program by getting himself detailed and Santangelo detailed so there were two fewer detectives available to work the Homicide rotation. The rotation may not be a perfect system*, but it's a system and even good syste...

What did you think of the Homicide commander's (Major Rawls) response to McNulty talking to the judge?
